Speedo Issue. I have done approx 4500kms on my unit in a few months of ownership. Todate the speedo looses its read out of the speed & temperature every now and then. I have pulled the connector off, checked the connection and connected again to no avail. The second issue is that the LCD display has blown some of the screen which leaves me without being able to read the exact KM's travelled and also the trip meter can not be read. I say blown as there is powder on the display not water. This issue was reported to my local KTM dealer (Penrith) some 3 months ago and only today I have been advised that it will be mid November until a new speedo is shipped as they are sourcing a new maker for this as they have had so many problems with the existing manufacture. Rear Mud Guard shearing bolts. I have found that the rear fender has broken 2 heads off the bolts that hold the mud guard to the brake fender. Trying to use a easy out, it has sent the bolt through (almost) the top of the guard. Im replacing these with Brass Top Hat looking things that will completely remove the crap plastic thread barrels. So be aware of this defect. Damage from a get off. One thing to note if you plan to drop the bike on the right hand side.. Well not on purpose, but trying to get up a rocky ledge (50 stories high) well it seemed it at the time, I lost forward movement and tried to put my right leg down on thin air, and over we went... Bike crashed down a tad.. after recovering and picking the bike up. I found that the only thing that saved the fuel tank was 5 ml of the right plastic guard. I would suggest to all to look into getting a crash bar that protects this area. If anyone finds one, then please post it here for all to leverage off. No Throttle Response. Is it me..?? but Im sure on a number of occassions I have started off (after warm engine) and I almost drop this thing as the power does not come on. It has also happened into a couple of turns you expect power (and yes I did twist the thing on the right hand side) but no get up. The motor is still idling, takes a second and on the power comes. Undocumented Neutral. Im finding that there is a Neutral inbetween 5th & 6th. I read that the problem should go away after a few km's but having 4500kms the problem is still there.. You simply have to keep upwarded preasure after declutching to ensure a gear is grabbed and not a whine of revs. Head Shake. Reading posts it seems common that most get a head shake at 100km, yet mine does not get this until 152km. I have changed all the dampers from Hard to Soft and everything in between and can not replicate the 100km issue. Maybe its the torque of the bearing nut...?? Im running standard enduro Tyres not Knobbies. Bigger Fuel Tank. Has anyone had hard word that a bigger tank is being moulded and if so, how much and when..?? Bash Plate. I have done a couple of rides that you would think would have damaged the skid plate / engine. But credit due.. It has only scratches. So is going to a metal one the way to go..?? Soft Pack Fuel Cells. Does anyone know where I can get a soft pack fuel container for extended trips. They can be folded when not in use and packed in a bag. I heard these are out there somewhere. Repair Manual. After a couple of months of waiting, I finally received my Repair manual for the 690e (CD). BUT, what I actually got was the Repair Manual 2007 for the 690 LC4 Supermoto. Art No 3.206.045. Can someone / anyone confirm that this one can be used for the 690 enduro 2008 model. I hesitate doing valves etc if they are not the same settings... Having said all the above.. I love this bike for both commuting to work (100kms) and also on local Fire Trails. This post is from Sydney Australia.
